1. Politics and religion can piss me off, and when they do, it gets pretty ridiculous.

2. People's rants against GLBT rights / marriage, and against abortion are really annoying to me - especially when I'm not in the mood to argue those topics. Oh and people's "drugs are bad" speeches who are uneducated about drugs (beyond D.A.R.E lolz) and have never even seen or smelled them. Jeez. People who are in your face or preachy about anything, really!

3. Open air/space preachers. They travel to campuses, use legal arguments about Free Speech to stay there despite being protested, and call the students "whore" "jezebel" "masturbator" "homosexual" "sinner" etc... and say "You're all going to hell, sinners!".... They have a really hateful message and believe that the Christian God is more judgmental and angry than he is loving and merciful. Seriously messed up things they say and do. Oh and their wives can't speak unless spoken to, I'm not even kidding, they believe the Bible mandates submissiveness of wives and children to the Husband/Father.
Note: Not your preacher. Not the preacher / priest / pastor at your church or anyone else's. The ones who are Fundamentalists who focus on the Old Testament and travel to University campuses, sometimes even outside the United States, to spread their message of negativity, hate, etc. I am only referring to those specific types of preachers, not any other kind. There's only about a 0.000000001% chance I'm actually talking about a preacher you know or have.

What upsets me are people who can't control their kids and get upset when other people do it for them.
Another thing that infuriates me is being stereotypes because of my gender or race.

Pretty much this.

I remember I had to do a in-class debate about Marijuana: Should it be legalized? (Though I'm pro-legalization I had to be against it for this lecture) I found it funny how it was really easy to sway people into thinking that it should be illegal using emotional "cushioning" around some of the facts.

Also people who go "THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!!"

Stupid americans who think just because they're out of money think that it's such a catastrophic issue. But look around you! Look around the world! There are thousands of people who don't have jobs or even money to support their family, living in crappy areas in the world. Also look at the starving, poor people who probably never even owned money. What really infuriates me are THAT bunch of americans who think that one little problem will ruin their life!


Being one of those "Stupid americans", I tend to take offense to this. Why shouldn't I worry about a financial situation when I could very well not have a job, or a home in a few years, let alone money for food, clothes? God forbid anything happens to my brother, he has a 3 year old. Yes, people's situation outside of the US is dire, people live in worse conditions, but worrying about your own situation from a financial standpoint is part of being an adult. Maybe I'm being a little condescending, but until you've got over 30k in student loans and are on the verge of going to jail because of said debt you really have no place to comment. That's what infuriates me.

It would be nice to not be ignorant about people's sensitivity on religion.
Saying the Christian God is Judgmental(from any other one), and angry, is a opinion, so please state it otherwise.
And I know a handful of preachers/pastors who aren't judgmental at all, who simply talk to students and leave them be if they don't want to hear about it.


sooo,

They are Christian open air preachers. They follow mostly the old testiment, really strictly, minus a thing or two. They obsess over anything related to sex, marriage, masturbation, and homosexuality. The Bible speaks of wives as being submissive to husbands, though I can't remember any of the verses, and of children being submissive to their parents. Everything they say they defend with Bible verses but it seems so wrong, evil, and twisted. Not that I'm trying to defend the Bible, just that it's such an awful way to read it - to pick out all the negative stuff and live your life that way. Anyway, it's a combination of mentalities from 1900 - 1950's with the Bible and it turns very anti-woman. I hope some of this makes a little more sense. To be honest, I've actually never heard a Muslim proselytize before.

Dude, you missed the point. Those are THEIR beliefs, not mine. They specify the Christian God, since to them, all other Gods of other religions (including Judaism and Islam) are not the same as the Christian God that they worship. They're known as Open Air preachers, not just your average joe preacher who isn't judgmental. I'm not talking about any other kind of preacher, at all. I don't care about preachers who preach in churches, just the ones that insist on preaching hateful messages on University campuses, threatening to sue if the University says they're not welcome. I care about the ones that hurt peoples feelings by slinging unnecessary and unwanted insults at them because they are holding hands or a girl is wearing a skirt or pants (instead of a long dress). So I'm not being ignorant, that would be you - since you didn't know what I was specifically talking about and automatically became defensive. You assumed incorrectly. I don't think all preachers are the same.

Why am I mad at them? Because they really hurt people's feelings and they only serve to bring more negativity in the world. They bring nothing good or positive into the world and their morals are skewed. That's why.

Yes, that makes a lot more sense now. Thank you for clarifying.
